1) If Venus and Serena both get through the rest of this year, it'll be proof God exists, cause that would take a miracle. There's half the year to go, and both of them get hurt often. I'm counting my blessings and not going crazy. It's good to see them #1 and #2. It's better to see them both health. It'll be GREAT, once Venus is #1 again it'll be great.
2) In December of 2000, who pegged Jennifer Capriati 3 GS titles? I'd say 'the field' has a damn good chance of winning the US Open. Remember, 'the field' already has two spots in the semis. Venus and Serena both have to win five matches to get that far.
I'd bet money right now on at least a 'One Williams final'. I'm keeping my shekels in my pocket where another ALL Williams affair is concerned.
Proud to be an American
Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.
